Hi! I recently bought a gigabyte gtx 980 g1 and a Acer xb270hu. Just love the combination. But as always, I get the need to upgrade more. Together with the 980 ti, I have a 3570k @ 4.5GHz (air), 8GB 1600MHz ram, Asus p8z77-v. My problem is that I worry that the gpu isn't able to use all Its strength. In some games, especially witcher 3, I sometimes get frame rates down to 50, averages around 65-70 at 1440p. This is typically in areas I would guess are cpu-heavy, like weather effects on vegetation etc. Do you think these frame rate drops are caused by my cpu? I want my computer to be quite future proof, and would like for my gpus power to be maximized. Do you think it's being held back by the cpu? Im taking 3d marks messages with a pinch of salt, but I got one saying : "your gpu is ready to rumble, but your cpu doesn't wanna play". I get around 8500 in physics store, in standard fire strike. If I should upgrade, should I go for skylake or Haswell-E? Do you think Haswell-E is more future proof because of Its six cores? I know the update isnt urgent, but Im guessing I' ll have to swap my cpu at some point. Or would you wait for next generation Intel, or perhaps AMD zen? The purpose of my pc is gaming.
